Interesting climbing on good rock. This route can also be an alternate start to Quiet Desperation, making Quiet Desperation a little more of an independent line from the Iron Cross.

Climb a thin corner past two bolts (11b), then angle up and right to join the first pitch of the Iron Cross just before it's crux (11a).


Start just left of the Iron Cross.


Bolts and thin gear.

Anyone here climbed this thing? Man kinda spicy! That slab between the second bolt and the crack of Iron Cross is a bit perplexing. Good fun!
